Maddeningly, the part of the post I've quoted can be (and has been) made about *any number of* female comic book characters.

But I believe things are changing. Thor1, actually, was praised as being a leader in this regard (see, for example, http://www.socialjusticeleague.net/2...ist-movie-yes/) And I've read bits and pieces about efforts Marvel seems to be making behind the scenes that make me hopeful that the change will extend beyond one movie.

That could be very interesting! Add depth to them both.

It's not such a bad thing that we know very little about Sigyn from myth. That means there's less in the way of expectations to constrain a writer.
